The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights is a coalition charged by its diverse membership of more than 200 national organizations to promote and protect the civil and human rights of all persons in the United States. Through advocacy and outreach to targeted constituencies, The Leadership Conference works toward the goal of a more open and just society – an America as good as its ideals.
The Leadership Conference Education Fund
The Leadership Conference Education Fund builds public will for laws and policies that promote and protect the civil and human rights of every person in the United States. In so doing, we also seek to promote an appreciation for the rich diversity of the country, and attitudes that are accepting of our differences and similarities. We were founded in 1969 as the education and research arm of The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights (then called the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights), the nation’s premier civil and human rights coalition of more than 200 national organizations.
New Education Majority
The “New Education Majority” national poll was commissioned to explore how Black and Latino parents and families view the American education system’s success in educating their children. It is meant to start a conversation about education policy changes that are truly reflective of what Black and Latino parents and families want, rather than to find out what Black and Latino parents think about the policies that currently dominate education policy debates.
